Gibrilville Tells A Tale About His Romantic Interests In New Single

Published

on

GREATER ACCRA, GHANA, Thursday March 26, 2020 – Some rappers construct words and eventually find the right beat to put their words to use, but Gibrilville states that an incredibly jazzy beat was his inspiration for ”Love and Hip-Hop”. Gibrilville proclaims that he has a story to tell and proceeds to tell us a romantic story about a woman who he wants to pursue.

His ability to sync delivery with the changes on a beat are especially interesting to hear and the ”old-school” aura of the song is refreshing. In many ways, Gibrilville sounds more updated than many veteran emcees. The DJ scratches and flute additions also truly make the entire song sound like a mellow orchestra you can enjoy anywhere, anytime.

This isn’t the first time that Hip-Hop has been compared to a woman and there is a clear influence from Common’s ‘I Used To Love H.E.R.’. He was inspired to write the song after hearing dozens of other instrumentals. The story of how Hip-Hop traveled throughout the United States came to him quickly and he began to create the story as a result.

The song accompanies a super modest video that showcases Gibrilville behind a microphone doing what he does best – dropping bars.
